half m training again

moger profile image

back to training again have had a few runs after the hip thing touch wood its ok at the moment , i have skipped to week nine of 16 on a garmin training plan which includes 2 days easy run 2 days interval training and the long run its all done in mins so its not that bad intervals are very tough but good when ended ,i had a 90 min long run on sunday half at easy pace and half at the end in race pace and felt quite strong on the finish all workouts include a 10 min cooldown with stretching i also found a training pace calc in runners world ,tis give you your pace/speed for your easy run s and intervals and the long run worth a look .got new shoes so can swap over but cant stop running in the new one s very light nike free 4.0 s ,its coming up for a year since i started this 1200 miles later im still smiling and looking forward to my 3rd half m this year happy running all

Great stuff... this is inspiring to me as I am training for my first half in Feb... can't wait (but I'm taking the training slow and steady like you seem to be)...

Thanks for sharing!

try the training pace calc in runners world that will give you your easy run pace intervals pace and long run pace run slower to run more distance and run distance to get faster i will keep a eye to see how your doing im on the other site gary bousfield

Wondered where you'd been! You've done really well with this running lark. Good luck with the training.
